NBC Universal and Peacock:
How To Piss Off Millions of Existing Fans and Customers, Part 2 of 2
aka What Not To Do CFL
You could perhaps script the following quip in the tone the timeless words of Hyman Roth of "The Godfather" fame:
"Back in September 2020, you see, the order, it was called, uh, Operation Peacock, was given. Here at NBC. We didn't ASK who gave the order. We did the order. It was none of our business who gave the order! This is the business we've chosen!"
Now this macho approach does not work very well in any given business or human relations including quite likely even in a drug cartel as well when results are not achieved.
But what did NBCU do after the Premier League debacle and all they could have learned from the failures of others in the last two years!?
Once again they didn't ask who gave the order, they just did the order, and then they went on to piss off a vast dominantly female audience on top of the dominantly male audience they had already enraged that fateful weekend in September 2020!
A few not so good men in charge at NBC I figure perhaps were left to sleep on their sofa, in their garage, or in a shed in the backyard (not the she-shed) assuming they were not fleeing their wives and all her female relatives after this decision that no way do I believe even consulted female executives or leadership at NBC!
Alas like many, I do not give a rip about soap operas.
But I take great joy in seeing such colossal failure in the works at NBCU given the core antics via Manhattan greed are the same!
CFL, again, do not deal with these louts at NBC or they will wreck your brand too because you and nobody else is the NFL to them.
And even the NFL has told NBC, mind you, that the NFL absolutely will not be on Peacock or of course we would find it there.
Perhaps moving Days of Our Lives to streaming was not the best idea for NBC. The network, which officially moved the long-running soap opera to Peacock earlier this month, is reported to have lost nearly 750,000 viewers since replacing it with NBC News Daily.
According to ShowBiz 411, the soap opera was averaging 1.6 million viewers per day on NBC. Meanwhile, the news hour that replaced Days only brought in 935,000 viewers last week, resulting in a loss of around 750,000 viewers for the network.
Viewers of the show were furious when the final airing of Days on NBC before its jump to streaming was cut short by King Charles III’s speech following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. And despite the stars feeling “very optimistic” about the future of the show, which has been on for 57 years, many fans are not echoing the same sentiment.
